Rollright Stones – revisited…

These are some of the Rollright Stones, near Chipping Norton on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border – I have been here before (see this post), but not for quite some time.

Three sets of Neolithic and Bronze age stones in total – a stone circle (The Kings Men), a burial chamber (The Whispering Knights) and a single monolith (The King Stone) – the stones are quite worn and pitted – they have been here for around 4500 years!

More details can be found here on Wikipedia or the official Rollright Stones site.

The photograph above shows some of the Kings Men stone circle, almost in silhouette against a dramatic sky – when I first arrived it was so foggy that it was not possible to see more than 20m but this had cleared considerably by the time I had taken Sparky for a walk down to Little Rollright and back.
